Courses

Principles of real-time and embedded systems operations and control applied to modern hardware platforms such as mobile and internet-of-things systems. As part of this course, embedded real-time design principles are introduced and linked to real-time resource management service issues impacting performance. Students construct real-time embedded resource management components and applications on representative platforms (e.g. handheld and mobile computers, autonomous systems, smart sensors, and others). An embedded real-time hardware/firmware laboratory experience is included.

Topics of timely interest in electrical and computer engineering. Course content may change from year to year according to instructor's preferences.

Instruction in library services, introduction of department faculty research and laboratories, thesis/dissertation requirements, professional ethics and standards, and seminar presentations by speakers from industry and academia in addition to UMass Dartmouth faculty. Students will be required to attend several department seminars and participate in technical discussions and write a report by the end of the semester.

Principles of multimedia communications systems and their design. Students will learn how to design multimedia communication systems and develop research on advanced and newly emerging techniques. The course will provide surveys and a comprehensive introduction of current topics related to multimedia communications. It will focus on the fundamentals of multimedia communication systems such as multimedia processing in communication, distributed multimedia systems, multimedia communication standards, multimedia communication across networks, and audio-visual integration.
